Does Hugh Jackman have a gay brother?
I came across your blog via your Huffington Post article, and am enjoying it immensely. You're very funny.
May I be honest? I moved to LA last year from Houston, and am considered very good looking (I think it's my hair), smart, funny, creative, and thoughtful, yet I can't GIVE IT AWAY. Well, not exactly, but that's pretty darn close to being accurate. I'm told people are intimidated by my self-awareness, and the other things I already humbly mentioned. What advice might you give me if I wanted to put myself into situations where other smart, confident, thoughtful, and what the heck, handsome men (in their 40's, like me) might gather?

Dear Hugh Jackman's gay brother,
Maybe you are his twin if the rumors are correct. Anyway, you need to place yourself in situations where you are not there looking for somebody. Where someone has a chance to realize that you are smart and funny as well as attractive. I highly recommend some adult education classes where you are going regularly and someone can get to know you.
As a gay man you may be drawn to ceramics or painting. I myself would recommend a language class, carpentry or plumbing. I will bet there are some great guys there. And in the 21st century all those old barriers about being gay or non-gay are falling away. Go get 'em! And please, report back. I want some front-line news!
